Twitter Hey fight fans, remember several months ago when I ranked the dogs owned by professional mixed martial artists? Well, as soon as I started sharing that post, I was told how much of a big dummy I am for not including several other punchmans and punchwomens pooches on the list. Since I hate to disappoint, I’ve scoured the realms of twitter and instagram, looking for fighters...

Via YouTube The Rock is doing press for Hercules everywhere he can, whether it’s The Tonight Show, Reddit or ESPN. His latest stop is to talk to the cats at Screen Junkies … specifically one cat whose Rock fandom overpowers any journalistic intent he might’ve walked into the interview with.

Sting Just Made A Surprise Appearance At WWE’s Comic-Con Panel

Via Twitter From left to right: Paul Heyman, Hulk Hogan, Sting, Daniel Bryan. So, uh, that picture’s blowing my mind. The story so far: pro wrestling legend Sting has never wrestled in WWE. NWA, WCW, TNA, sure, he’s wrestled in all of those. Never WWE. He made a cryptic tweet earlier this month with the date 7.7.14. It was a Monday, so people thought he was gonna show...

Chael Sonnen And Vitor Belfort Fought The Nevada State Athletic Commission. Who Won?

Via Imgur Yesterday, the Nevada State Athletic Commission convened to review several open cases. Usually, things like this don’t get much press, since it’s typically just old fighters applying for licenses, but yesterday was special. Vitor Belfort, one of those old fighters, was applying for a license to fight in Las Vegas, the first time fighting in the United States since 2011...

So, What The Hell Is Going On With #WWETransformed?

Twitter WWE isn’t great at being cryptic. Over the last ten years or so, the only answers to cryptic photos, videos or tweets have been, “it’s Chris Jericho,” or, “it’s the Undertaker.” That’s it. There’s always an IT’S STING element, but a video game pre-order bonus is the closest that’s ever come to being true. The hashtag #WWETransformed made its debut...

Via Zia Hiltey As some of you may remember, I love Chikara and will tell anyone about it whether they’re willing to listen or not.

Jim Ross’ WWE Career Officially Ends Today

WWE It’s time to shed a bitter tear for the WWE commentary situation, because today Jim Ross, the best commentator WWE has or ever will have, is officially done with the company. Jim Ross had a tumultuous relationship with WWE for years. The company thought he was too old and unphotogenic for TV, but they couldn’t find a replacement even a 10th as good as him, so he was brought...

Jack White Went To A Chicago Cubs Game Last Night. He Looked Miserable.

Via DEADSPIN Jack White is more famous than the average Chicago Cubs fan, so to blend in at Wrigley Field, he looked like the average Cubs fan: miserable. “The Party of the Century” was no match for White’s scowl, a common sight among the Bleacher Bums, which would actually be a good Jack White album name. It could be the followup to I’m Finding It Harder to Be a Baseball...

Happy 49th Birthday, HBK: Shawn Michaels’ 10 Best Post-First-Retirement Matches

WWE.com Shawn Michaels has one of the most unique wrestling careers ever. He went from d*ckhead drugged out political jerk who buried everyone he could while also having the best matches in the business.

Please Allow A Sumo Wrestler To Show You How Sumo Wrestlers Maintain Their, Um, Figures

Ever wonder how Sumo wrestlers maintain their rotund figures? Well, it’s not from eating cheeseburgers and ice cream, apparently. Rather, in order to get in the 10,000 or so calories they need to consume each day when they’re training, many Sumo guys eat lots of chankonabe, a Japanese stew that helps fatten them up more healthily. In this video from Vice’s Munchies, Sumo champion...
